Reintroduction to Wine

It’s been awhile since we posted. We will get better about posting once a week!

Honestly, life has been busy. I’ve had a super busy couple of weeks at work and I haven’t really wanted to reintroduce much, but I am now in a book club with a couple of my co-workers. We had book club this past Thursday and for the majority of the foods served there, I was able to eat them. I decided to partake in some wine while there.

I had two glasses. Two different wines. A Chardonnay and a Rosé.

They were wonderful while consuming them but later that evening, my stomach began to hurt. I can’t be certain that it was the wine, even though everything I ate was Whole30. Maybe I ate too much? But it made me realize, unless it’s a special occasion and I truly want it, I won’t be partaking in wine very frequently; not that I drank much before.

Gorgeous spread done by the hostess of bookclub! She included Tessemae’s, fruit, salami, almonds, Siete chips and compliant salsa.

And now for what you really want to see:


Saturday, we spent some time at a pop-up shop that involved several local artisans. One of them is our friend, Ella Marie Handmade, who makes hand-dyed, hand-stitched goods. She was so sweet to give us one of her oil bags. We absolutely love it- each oil can be placed in its own holder. It’s been wonderful for travel and organization! We highly recommend ordering something from her here
